All has been good with Lizzy Girl. We start the DTaP clearing on 09 27 2010. Hope and pray that there will be good results.
Grandma arrived and Lizzy has been very responsive to her. She walked up to Grandma and placed her arm around hers. It was very sweet. I am sure my Mom’s heart melted. It does Mom’s heart good to spend time with Lizzy. Like the rest of us Mom hopes and prays for Lizzy’s complete recovery. What a joyous day it will be!
While I was holding Howard he was a little fussy. Lizzy came up to Howard and grabbed his hand and said, “It’s okay, it’s alright.” What a wonderful moment. I love when Lizzy responds to people’s emotions. That is huge for me. What a difference from 2 years ago. There were times when I would be crying while thinking of Lizzy’s difficulties and she would come up to me and laugh. Her response would make me feel even more upset. I wished that she could understand what emotions are. Now we see a huge change. Praise God!
At the beginning of our journey through autism I read a book by Pearl S. Buck entitled The Child Who never Grew. It tells the story of the author’s journey with her autistic daughter during a time when very little was known about the disorder. I felt her pain and reflected on how blessed I am that I was walking down the same road during a different time. A time where information is easily accessed and awareness is welcomed and not shunned. If one looks deep enough there is always something to be thankful for. I love Pearl S. Buck’s writing style. Her book The Good Earth is one of my favorites and now I love it even more.
Lately I have been thinking about the mom’s in our family. My own and also her mom. My maternal Grandma raised 11 children during a time that was very difficult. Poverty, the depression and an inability to access information so easily was part of their daily lives. I look back on her plight and empathize. To have a child every two years and not have the help of homeopathy must have been incredibly difficult. I take Sepia to help with my work load. Sepia is for women who are exhausted, need a vacation and have disorders of the female reproductive system. How Grandma could have benefitted from this remedy! Not to mention her children would have benefitted from having a Mom that was not angry, exhausted and just plain spent. Grandma used to tell me as a young girl that she felt she “Wanted to run to the hills.” That is exactly how one feels when they need Sepia.
My mom could have benefitted from Sepia also. She was a single Mom raising three girls and working as a school teacher. Man she was tired and spent too. There was always something that needed to be fixed or done. Mom raised the three of us to be independent so we learned how to do a lot of things. Painting, replacing a toilet, landscaping you name it we did it. My mom taught me a lot about how to get things done. If it wasn’t for her I would not be able to tackle all of the stuff that I do. Thanks Mom! Three generations of women who took it on and got it done. I am so very proud to be part of this group. I hope I provide the same things for my 3 girls and my 6 boys.
Sepia is derived from the cuttlefish and it is great for restoring the physical and emotional weaknesses all women experience from time to time. The sign that I need it is when I want to go into my room to escape and read. Get away from all of the demands that we as mother’s face. That is the telltale sign. I highly recommend that any mom who is feeling this way consult a homeopath asap and get relief. You will never want to be without it again.
Lizzy’s condition opened the door for me to discover homeopathy. How things have changed. My grandmother and mom had husbands that played a very traditional role for the time. Their husbands were not active in helping to raise their kids. My husband Todd helps soooooo much. Not to mention my kids. I still need Sepia. Being a mom is one of the most difficult jobs I know of. So like any job we have to have the proper tools. Sepia is one tool I can not do without.
Lizzy’s condition has opened do many doors for all of us. This journey has allowed all of us to grow and change for the better. Our lives would not be the same otherwise. Thanks Lizzy!
I pray for Lizzy Girl to keep moving forward and be content. I hope we get a great clearing the next month without Lizzy being too uncomfortable or upset. It is so difficult to see one we love suffering. I pray for strength and endurance for our entire family.
May we all have sweet dreams tonight and have the strength to begin the DTaP round tomorrow.
